Partners and collaborations

Industrial partners

The SPHERE unit and the company IDBC (A2Com group) created in 2016 the Joint Laboratory RISCA (Research in Informatics and Statistics for Cohort-based Analyses).

The project – half financed by the French National Research Agency – aims to develop and to commercialize Plug-Stat®, a personalized software for the analysis of cohort-based data. The objective is also to improve the dissemination of the research in Biostatistisc from the SPHERE unit across applications in clinical research.
